LEGO Star Wars May the 4th be with you

Coming up soon, May the 4th is official Star Wars Day, celebrated with many exciting events by Star Wars fans. This year is particularly significant as we get closer to the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film at the end of the year. In fact we have just talked about the recent Star Wars Celebration the other day (see: LEGO Star Wars New Sets, Updates & More!), and I’m sure there will be many more such events. But still, May the 4th is special as Star Wars Day, and of course LEGO is participating in the event by offering new sets and promotions. We will talk about these in detail shortly, but today I wanted to share with you a postcard I got in the mail from LEGO that hints on what’s coming. 🙂

LEGO Star Wars MAY THE 4TH Celebration

At the front of the postcard is Admiral Yularen in minifig form. He is going to be the special free exclusive from May 2-4 with any LEGO Star Wars purchase of $75 or more. Inside the postcard you can read about other specials, including a free Star Wars Episode IV poster with any LEGO Star Wars purchase, select LEGO Star Wars sets on sale (we don’t know which ones yet), and a building event at official LEGO stores during the weekend leading up the 4th (this year May the 4th falls on a Monday, so it makes sense for LEGO to extend the fun through the weekend).


Also featured inside the postcard is the brand new #75095 LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter, the latest in the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series, which will be released on May 2nd. This set is 1,685 pieces and features the classic Imperial starfighter, along with a display-stand. Prices will be US $199.99 – CA $229.99 – DE 199.99€ – UK £169.99 – DK 1799.00 DKK (Euro pricing varies by country).


The most interesting part of the postcard is the back. There is a small ad with tiny text that states: “Just for VIPs! Win 1 of 10 New Exclusive TIE Fighters! Signed by the Owners of the LEGO Group.” Then with even tinier texts it says (I actually had to borrow the magnifying glass from my detective minifig to read it): “No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. US and Canadian LEGO VIP members aged 18 and over only, excluding Quebec. Valid May 2-4, 2015. For official rules visit shop.LEGO.com.” I assume that this means on May 2nd there will be a special link for LEGO VIP members where they can enter the drawing. Pretty exciting, isn’t it?


So what do you think? Are you looking forward to Star Wars day? And did you get the postcard also? Are you planning to enter the contest to win the new LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

    First, I n
    knew about this for a while, but I was stuck between this or the orthanac I choose the orthanac..for resell. Defiantly will enter that raffle most likely none of us will win. The Tie fighter will be around for a while so the only thing good about May the 4th is the polly bag…

      There will be Star Wars sets on sale too! 🙄

      • LegoGeekOffical April 29, 2015, 11:48 AM

        True, but LEGO on sale is not exclusive to May the 4th.
        Also what is the website to change your gravatar?

          This sale is going to be on LEGO Star Wars sets and will only run April 2-4. 😉

          • LegoGeekOffical April 29, 2015, 1:58 PM

            Okay, its called price match and coupon at TRU. That makes the cost around 20% off retail.

                    Just refresh the page. When you first try it out it always takes a minute. But I can see it just fine. 😉

                    • LegoGeekOffical April 29, 2015, 10:36 PM

                      Yes! p.s. this is so I have an Icon on my website
                      oh admin just experienced problems with plugins 🙄 my product generator crashed and made it were i couldn’t put pics up nor update a page. So now i just have normal pages.

                    • admin April 30, 2015, 10:10 AM

                      Yeah, that can happen. Always check to make sure that the plugin you are installing is regularly updated and has good rating.

    If Inget this, I’m keeping it in the poly bag. I got my tc-14 about 2 years ago for a purchase of 75 dollars or more. I kept it in the poly bag and saw how it did on e-bay. Suggestion is to keep it in the bag! Could be worth money since it’s rare.

    • David Tennant Lover April 29, 2015, 5:43 PM

      *If I get this

      • MrMonsieurGreen April 29, 2015, 6:00 PM

        I usually end up getting 2, one for me, one for the resale.

        • David Tennant Lover April 29, 2015, 7:25 PM

          Yeah, I usually do the same thing. It’s good to have one to mess around with, and one in the bag.

  • MrMonsieurGreen April 29, 2015, 5:59 PM

    I’m really curious what the sales will be for the U.S. I saw that HothBricks had found them for another country but has anyone seen anything for the U.S. for sales?

  • Gabriel April 30, 2015, 3:01 PM

    Super excited for this! I was at Star Wars Celebration, so I wonder if the Episode IV poster is the same on they were handing out there. It probably is.

    But that Admiral Yularen minifigure! I got the Death Star for Christmas, and thought, “You know what would be really awesome? An Admiral Yularen minifigure.” And now, here he is! I am planning on purchasing the Tatooine cantina set, and then another small set to make it to $75. It’s going to be great!

    Also, I will definitely be entering the contest. By purchasing with your VIP code you are automatically entered, but you can send an email to enter once per day throughout the weekend, May 2-4. Might as well try, right?

    • admin April 30, 2015, 4:12 PM

      Gabriel, I haven’t found any specific info on the poster, so it could very well be the same one as the one you got at Star Wars Celebration. Thanks for the details about entering the contest! 🙂
